Ghost of Wright’s murdered ex-wife to tell her story

In 2017, Wade House Historic Site celebrates the 150th birthday of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright with season-long exhibits, lectures, and educational activities focusing on Wright's life and work in Wisconsin and his relationship with Sheboygan carriage collector and restoration expert Wesley W. Jung.

The next event in the year-long celebration of Frank Lloyd Wright is "Regretting Mr. Wright: Mamah Tells Her Own Story", a museum theatre performance featuring Elizabeth Carlson as Mamah Bouton Borthwick, the woman for whom Frank Lloyd Wright left his family in 1909.

"Regretting Mr. Wright" will be held on Thursday, July 13 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The presentation will be preceded by a complimentary reception featuring microbrews and light hors d' oeuvres, which will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Ninety-eight years ago on August 15, Mamah Bouton Borthwick, her two children and four other people were murdered, and Frank Lloyd Wright's home in Spring Green, Wisconsin was burned to the ground. Why?

Meet Mamah for yourself and come to understand why this well-educated, articulate woman worked so hard to change the society in which she lived; why she left her husband and children to pursue her own scholarship and her work with Frank Lloyd Wright; and how her ghost feels about it today.

Admission to the "Regretting Mr. Wright: Mamah Tells Her Own Story" on July 13 is complimentary. For more information, visit the website at or call 920-526-3271.
